Transfer Students

Transferring athletic training students are students who have been enrolled in another athletic training program regardless of whether they are currently enrolled in their previous program.  The athletic training courses to be transferred into Tusculum College will be evaluated for transfer credit on an individual basis.  A grade of “C” or better is required for all accepted transferred athletic training courses.  Athletic training courses will not be accepted for transfer if they were completed three or more years from the date of enrollment in the athletic training program; courses older than three years will have to be repeated.

Transferring athletic training students who wish to transfer from another athletic training program may do so on a seat available basis and only if they have not failed or dropped more than one previous athletic training course.  Athletic training students are not eligible for admission if they have repeated one or more athletic training courses and earned grades lower than a ”C” for both attempts.  Transferring athletic training students must meet all Tusculum College and Athletic Training Program admission requirements.  In addition to applying for admission to Tusculum College, athletic training students must submit a transfer admission application and an official transcript to the athletic training program director.  Athletic training students may be asked to provide the program director with copies of previous athletic training course syllabi.

Acceptance of transfer and substitute credits in athletic training to meet requirements of the curriculum will be determined by the school. A student who transfers into the athletic training program at Tusculum College will be required to repeat any athletic training or other required courses which are not considered comparable to the Tusculum College Athletic Training Program curriculum or in which the grade earned is lower than a “C”. Transfer students must meet the same standards as other students in the program.
